WHAT IS FAITH?

“And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” Heb 11:6

It’s easy to over complicate what faith is. Faith is simply believing in God and showing it through your everyday life. You can truly activate your faith when you step out into the unknown. Whether that is by starting that new business, going for an idea, or taking that new job. This is the year for it! Here are 3 truths you need to understand that will build your faith: 

GOD IS FOR YOU

God wants you to get that promotion, and to drive that nice car. God is not against you. He is on your side and wants to see you achieve that dream in your heart. He will provide everything that you need. He is a good father.

GOD HAS NEVER FAILED YOU

Has God EVER failed you?  He didn’t fail you then, and He’s not going to fail you now. You have to envision yourself on the other side of this thing — and believe that He is going to take you through it. Don’t let fear or worry creep in. God will not fail you.

GOD WANTS TO BE WITH YOU

God is asking you “What do you want to do? Where do you want to go?” Often times we look to God for answers in life. What should we do? Where should we go? The truth is, He is into the things that you are into. Do you want to write a song, or write a book? God is into it! It’s what is in a person’s heart that God is with. He placed it there! Develop a vision for yourself, dream big, think, make decisions, step out- God wants to be with you.

Your faith pleases God. In Hebrews 11, Paul tells us that God “rewards those who earnestly seek Him.” He will always back you up when you take a step of faith. It’s by this knowledge and understanding that your faith will begin to shift into a new level this year.
